As part of the DUMBO Arts Festival, the base of the Manhattan Bridge in Brooklyn was lit up with multiple coordinated projectors to create a light show of 3D animations and graphics that interacted with the architecture of the bridge.

As Above – So Below is a video mapping projection installation, conceived and created by a group of six artists, Simon Anaya, Farkas Fulop, Richard Jochum, Johnny Moreno, John Ensor Parker & Ryan Uzilevsky. With significant sponsorship from visual production company Senovva, and others, the artists developed a multi-perspective 3D installation that spans a nearly 30,000 square feet canvas on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in Brooklyn.

Creation of the piece incorporates green screen film shoots, Kinect 3D scanning, stop-motion animation, computer modeling and a host of visual effect programs. The result is an exploration through the inner layers of our psyche, and an inquiry of our personal value systems.

As Above – So Below is included in Immersive Surfaces, a public video projection exhibition curated by Leo Kuelbs and presented during the Dumbo Arts Festival 2011.

Artists: John Ensor Parker (www.natureofenergy.com), Farkas Fulop, Johnny Moreno, Simon Anaya, Richard Jochum, and Ryan Uzilevsky
